Although there is no challenge this week

I decided to add another post

to last week’s

Urban Focus

challenge. 

Geelong by day

from my hospital room in May 2021.

This hospital is located nearly at the edge of the city.

 

The Eastern Beach Geelong

From the top of these pathways…

 

…beachgoers are only about a five-minute walk

from the Geelong CBD.

Geelong by night

from my hospital room in May 2021.

This hospital is located nearly at the edge of the city.

 

The Eastern Beach Promenade,

where families and sun lovers alike mix.

 

The Geelong Ferris Wheel is one of

the newest constructions in

the Eastern Beach Precinct.

 

Easily identifiable since lights for night games

were installed is the Geelong Football Ground,

  home of the Geelong Cats.

 

Older parts of Geelong…

 

…contrast against the very new parts.

The domed roof is Geelong’s Library.

 

Finally…almost Geelong’s most well-known attractions,

some of its bollards

Some random Bollards…

This couple greet visitors to the

Geelong Botanical Gardens

Now Geelong is out of lockdown…

…I must visit the Geelong foreshore once again

to see if these last two can be found in 2021.

 When we first sighted this metal artwork,

we had no idea what it was called

or meant to be…

 

…so we agreed they looked like sharks teeth

and so the art had a name.

For around ten years we were

comfortable with the name.

It was not until someone at the camera club

presented a photo and I referred to

the shark’s teeth that the club secretary

let out a chuckle and told me he had heard

the art called many things but not shark’s teeth.

What they did represent is the sails of

the many small craft that sail

Geelong’s Corio Bay.
